The World's Greatest Creation is the LEGOŽ Brick. With out the LEGOŽ Brick, there is no MOCpages. Every MOC is started from one LEGOŽ Brick. Every MOC finishes with one LEGOŽ Brick. LEGOŽ spans for several generations, reaches across continents, and bridges languages. The simple brick has been transformed into the most creative and vesatile construction tool on the planet, and, as days go by, even more ingenious uses are invented. Just think about it.

... or if we teamed up, a tower to the Moon?
... there are holes in some pieces a child will still breathe if swallowed?
... the word "lego" comes from the Danish word "LEg GOdt" which means "play well?"

... laid end to end, the LEGOŽ Bricks sold in a YEAR would wrap around the Earth 5 times?
... any toy better than LEGOŽ?
